Be careful with that extra spacewithin the angle brackets, Mail.app 
will add it to the url,
and you get a 404 error. Use this link instead:

It is a nice and relevant piece, along with:

http://www.ideography.co.uk/library/seybold/WYS-ante.html ("What has 
WYSIWYG done to us?")
http://cbbrowne.com/info/document.html ("Document Formats", and related 
http://www.linuxgazette.com/issue22/words.html ("Word Processing and 
Text Processing")

The first issue of the free software magazine also has a few articles 
on document formats
and the issue of who owns your data. The magazine is formatted in 
LaTeX, maybe add it to a
showcase page somewhere.
